This was my 1st, hopefully of many trips to the Sofitel Karnak Luxor. They say it is 5*, but would disagree with parts of the hotel. Reception was a swift experience, Beautiful Pool with great barmen Amer & Mohamed Lotfi who made us feel very welcome.
The Sundowner Bar, a great place when the sun is going down to have a drink, which is right on the banks of the Nile, especially romantic with that "special person".
We walked into Luxor one day & visited the Karnak Temple. We were hassled to get Taxi's & horse drawn carriage rides which we didn't want, we just wanted to walk but they never accepted "no" which wasn't very favourable.
The rooms were clean & tidy with housekeepers (Mohammed ) surprising us with swans, Egyptian heads & crocodile's to be greeted by, the beds & pillows were very comfortable & mini bar fully stocked.
The buffet restaurant was great, always something to suit your taste buds, also staff very helpful. Nageh the Food & Beverage Manager treated us very well, we even had dinner one evening with the General Manager & Assistant Manager who accompanied us with friends we had met on this holiday. Egyptian Night is a must!!!
So a great All-Inclusive holiday, with lots of great memories .................
